. but with hillary clinton and joe biden both in the news this week you see it's never too early for presidential politics for a lot of these folks. >> and richard wolffe, how do you see this issue that's developed? we saw on "meet the press" this weekend talking about the surprise that hillary clinton is so obviously and kind of openly running for president. as you know, richard, on this show panelists are not allowed to even consider the possibility that hillary is not already running. >> bear that in mind. >> does she have to make it so obvious? >> it's an interesting media reaction. what -- i mean, it seems that no one is struggling against the idea that people on the republican side can make it obvious. why is hillary clinton under some kind -- or should she be under any kind of limitation on making it obvious? >> she shouldn't be under any limitation at all. and to be fair, we're talking about world affairs and foreign policy. it's actually very different from laying the groundwork for a national domestic political campaign, where as a clinton the world has moved on somewhat since those day
the field. >> i don't think so. martin o'malley made noise he's interested, joe biden, and kristen gillibrand, elizabeth warren, a lot of buzz, and governor cuomo from new york. a lot of talk. and let me not forgot joe biden. he will call me this afternoon and remind me. it's too early to handicap the race, if hillary clinton gets into the race, there will be a coronation of her because there are so many democrats who last time around supported her, who i think are anxious to see her out there again. >> i read your brother, mayor of san antonio, heading to iowa as well. you accompanying him? >> he's not running for anything. he's headed out to the harkin steak fry in september. >> a lot of tilling of the ground. let me bring this back to you, congressman, because it seems there's a brewing potential civil war inside the republican party. you heard sarah palin last night said she was on the team of rand paul versus chris christie. >> there's a lot of competition out there. with regard to the democratic side, i seem to remember in 2007, this was hillary's nomination. obama may run ju
president joe biden traveling to iowa next month. he'll be attending a steak fry. why is that news? we'll tell you why. >> it ain't the steak. can becom. i'm phil mickelson, pro golfer. when i was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, my rheumatologist prescribed enbrel for my pain and stiffness, and to help stop joint damage. [ male announcer ] enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. since enbrel helped relieve my joint pain, it's the little things that mean the most. ask your rheumatol
is playing it coy. vice president joe biden not at all coy. that is not his personality. he is making waves of his own. announcing he will travel to the key state of iowa next month. bob cusack joins us, managing editor of "the hill." bob, good to see you. clinton has 51-point lead in the latest poll over other contenders. whereas voters consistently are pretty divided in their opinion over joe biden. so i mean is he running in event she doesn't? and, you know, even if that's the case it is going to be a struggle for him, isn't it? >> it is. every vice president, unless you're dick cheney wants to the president. biden is doing the things to prepare for a run. i think it is highly unlikely he would run against hillary clinton. the narrative for joe biden he has been getting deals done in washington. in very partisan time he was the key player in getting the fiscal cliff deal done but he does not have the fund-raising ability or the persona that hillary clinton does. but, clearly, hillary clinton is aiming to run. she recently joined twitter. it is going to happen unless there's a health issu
to the j.f.k. thing, a story in the paper today or yesterday, the joe biden forces are coming after hillary clinton hard for the nomination in 2016. my question is can hillary be up ended by joe biden? >> it's very unlikely, but i will say this. it's possible, larry. remember in 2006, 2007, what were we saying? hillary couldn't possibly be beaten. you never know. >> that was the answer i hoped you'd give me. let me ask you, besides joe biden who else in your judgment right now might be out there to challenge hillary who you think is not unbeatable? me, too. she could be beaten. >> well, governor martin o'malley is all but running, the governor of maryland. he clearly wants it more than any of the other candidates beyond hillary and biden. you know, if hillary doesn't run, i don't think it's likely. i think it's very unlikely she wouldn't run. if she doesn't run, kady bar the door you'll see democrats right, left and in the middle running. >> let me ask you this. you do think she is going to run. >> when has a clinton not run when they've had the opportunity to run for a public office? never
, a number of republicans have done it that way. on the democratic side joe biden, a guy named joe biden jumped into the race early back in was it, '93 and then got out quickly. getting in early, jim, is not necessarily a guaranty of success. >> no. look, every democrat thought that teddy kennedy would get the nomination, probably in '76. and then in 80 and 84. because he was such a huge name, chappaquiddick notwithstanding. mark shields, veteran democratic pundit likes to joke he was first guy to plan the inauguration for president muskie in 1973. of course he was the democrat who lost to george mcgovern in the primary. there are 30 twist and turns to come. the jon, the fact you're praising iowa's farmland tells me that, gleam in your eye. >> muskie had not shed a tear he might have been president if he hadn't cried in new hampshire. many people may think hillary is foregone conclusion which may not be true but others in the field could be easily running for vice president. as you pointed out, joe biden started really early, he became the choice of barack obama to be vp. so that could b
the alleged use of chemical weapons by the assad regime. speaking last night, u.s. vice president joe biden said there was no doubt chemical weapons were used and those responsible should be held accountable. the british prime minister david cameron's office backed the white house earlier today saying both governments had clear evidence the regime carried out the attacks. cameron reconvened parliament early to vote for a motion on syria on thursday, but some surrounding cautious on international intervention. sergey lavrov has reportedly warned the u.n. that an attack on syria would destabilize the region. hadly gamble is with us on set. >> the russians aren't the only ones worried about what a post assad syria would look like. i had a chance to catch up with an egyptian billionaire and he said, yes, he thinks assad's days are numbered but is deeply troubled about what will happen to the country when assad is gone. >> the problem right now is exactly that. we want to help the syrian people to get out of dictatorship. that is for sure. but under no way fanatic, terroristic elements that oper
what we heard barack obama and joe biden as vice-presidential candidate in 2008. at one point joe biden said in 2007 if then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, separate from syria in the middle east, joe biden would lead impeachment charges against the president. they have gone a long way from that. what they're saying now, there won't be a vote in congress but that instead what the president will do is consult with congress, this phone call at 6:00 p.m. eastern and other phone calls that have already happened. there's a lot of intense action as the president faces a lot of pressure on this decision whether he will move forward or not. you heard him in the pbs interview saying it could be a shot across the bow against syria. there are military experts say a shot across the bow sounds symbolic. they wand to hear from the president directly. we haven't from him beyond the press interview and cnn interview last week directly from the military what the mission would be. >> and it's growing, bipartisan push for questions, push for answers and consultation with congress and

the united states government, white house, secretary kerry, joe biden, the higher the risk people say whatever the united states is saying is to support israel, western tendencies. there is all about in the mix. whatever we say is not how things are seen in the region. stuart: what is the feeling amongst muslims? one group has attacked another and killed them with poison gas. is there no repulsion here? >> most have been here before. this happened in 2007. yes, it's ironic, yes, it's hard to understand, but israel has done anything similar to what saddam hussein or asad in syria has done. there would be protests every day up and down the street, but mostly broadly muslim violence, maybe 20% of the population globally. stuart: muslims killing muslims by the millions now guessing by the hundreds, no demonstration on the street, nothing happens. we can't understand that. >> it is human nature. when the irish killed the irish, it is a different response. stuart: it is israel, america, the wicked christians, the jews. speaker that is how the middle east acts. it is easy to blame the old cr

[applause] you simply say his name and people naturally laugh. but vice president joe biden had some advice for all of us. if somebody is attacking your home, just go outside with a double barrel shotgun and fire both arrows into the air. which is very good advice. if it happens you're being attacked by a flock of geese. on guns, following the horrific tragedy in newtown, president obama came out saying, not let's go come down on the violent criminals like a ton of bricks. but instead, the president said, we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law- abiding citizens. in washington, the momentum was entirely with the president on this. conventional wisdom was that this was unstoppable. and i will tell you that three senators signed a very simple and short note to hear he read that said we will -- harry reid that said we will filibuster anything that prohibits our right to bear arms.

think the president is trying very hard to thread a complicated needle. in april of 2010, joe biden and president obama hosted a major nuclear materials and wmd materials conference here in washington, d.c., and viewed essentially trying to create -- restoring a global commons that prevented the proliferation and use of wmds and chemical weapons as a defining point of their administration. so not to act from their point of view is not really an opposioption. i think when from their point of view they're trying to create a stable option, how do you go from a strike on syria to a geneva peace process? you have both sides squaring off. and i think it may sound odd and it would be nice to review in a month on what happens, but if things went well and you were able to punish the regime enough so that people could tell it was compelling but not part of a regime strategy which the administration has been bending over backwards saying we're not trying to knock out assad, that is a signal to the russians saying we are open to some change in the future. and that allows us to go into a geneva

. they are standing firm behind the president. the president went out and made phone calls to john kerry, joe biden. they finalized the decision this morning. >> we were all glued watching john kerry give this long drawn out dramatic speech about making the case for going, at least some military action, with syria and now this. why put john kerry out there on friday and then less than 24 hours later say, we're going to hold our horses a little bit here? >> reporter: that's a very good question. john kerry will be on the sunday morning talk shows tomorrow morning including state of the union. in some ways john kerry was not only talking about what he thinks and what the administration thinks, he was responding to what was happening around the world. the united nations had really in the minds of the white house had really stimmied this president. they could not go to the u.n. security council and say give us a vote for striking syria because russia was saying no. we're not going to give you that vote. the united kingdom, britain that's always there with the united states just had that traumatic vote

enough to challenge her. the only possibility is joe biden, and i am >>> good evening from new york. i'm chris hayes. tonight on "all in" it's the hottest show not on television. netflix's true story women's prison drama "orange is the new black." tonight i'll be joined by piper kerman, author of the book and inspiration for the show's lead character. you definitely want to stick around for that. >>> plus, did the department of justice really try to change a bunch of numbers on its website and hope we didn't notice? well, we noticed. that and a collection of other political sneakiness coming up. >>> we begin tonight with what appears to be the most restrictive voting measure passed in this country in the deep south since the voting rights act was signed in 1965. speaking of sneakiness, the bill was signed last night by north carolina governor pat mccrory, more than two weeks after it passed with no lye ceremony, not so much as a picture, just this weird 90-second hostage-style video. >> hi, i'm governor pat mccrory. the integrity of our election process is vital to our democracy, which
and creates a task force for the middle-class. joe biden headed that because he is very upper class. even obama began shifting focus from the working class and the poor to lower middle class so i think who he is appealing to while he was campaigning originally in his first term to average earners after the great recession. the mortgage crisis. a lot of us were hurt. it didn't matter if you were in upper-middle-class you got hurt by the mortgage crisis as well. for him to get elected he started appealing towards wealthier people than he had in his first term. so where are we now? we are still at the one top% of households own one third of the total private health. it's staggering 5% of americanamerican s account for war than one third of consumer purchases. this idea of the bell curve of the post-war years does not exist anymore. regardless of your political inclinations. if you look at these numbers i'm not sure how you can say there is a genuine middle-class. and going to wrap up. i think the rise and fall of the american middle class is one if not the biggest story of the 20 century in

statement on monday followed up by joe biden to the american legion the next day that that was signaling that the white house is ready to go. >> and i think that the president also signal that had in his own words that he is ready to do so, but i think that that is different from actually doing it. and again, i think that the president is going to want to see how much international support he's going to have for it. >> let me ask about iran. what will iran do? there have been a lot of tweets from the new you president as well as warnings that there will be action. would you expect them to take action against israel? >> you always want to be careful with iran. we have to be careful because what we know about their system is very limited. but everything that i'm seeing from them right now suggests that they're unlikely to do something terribly provocative in response. the iranians have their own problems right now. they are under deep international sanctions, they have huge issue, their own internal problems. i don't think they are looking for a fight with the united states over syria. >>
